Adam Milstein, who is a very successful property investor born in Israel in 1952, joined the Israeli Defense Forces in 1971 to serve under Ariel Sharon prior to his becoming the prime minister of Israel in the Yom Kippur War. In 1974, he married his wife and eventually moved to the United States later in 1981. In California where they moved, Adam got his MBA from USC and continued the tradition of property development and culture that he had developed from his parents in his home country.
In today’s world, Adam Milstein has created an astounding real estate portfolio worth 2 billion dollars, under the name of “Hager Pacific Properties”. This work has allowed him to focus on his true love and legacy, which is helping the Israeli people and unifying relations between Israel and America. Donating an excess of 1 million dollars per year which strengthen Israeli-American relations, Adam Milstein asserts in his Times of Israel article that although Jews have always faced prosecution and should be remembered for the greats who have led the way like Col. Mickey Marcus, the ways in which anti-Semitism occurs is ever-changing and so it is always important to grow relations with the up-and-coming generation. One of the people who led the way, states Milstein, was the famous Colonel Mickey Marcus from Brooklyn, New York. Mickey built up a reputation as a great leader in World War II for America, but he left for Israel in 1948 to further commit to his roots. Becoming a respected General in Israel, it is people like Mickey who have helped stop the wedge between Israel and the world.
One main tactic of dividing the Israeli people is commonly called “BDS” around the world; BDS is short for “boycott, divestment, and sanctions”. A lot of the interaction with the younger up-and-coming generation of American Jews is at the Israeli American Council meetings, of which Adam Milstein is the founder.
